Just a quick post to let you know I’m celebrating my 4th blog anniversary today! This blog baby has grown up fast! There are some exciting projects and surprises coming up this next year and I can’t wait to share them with you guys. (And there’s a new autumn pattern on the way!)
Thank you all so much for sticking with me and following this journey – you’re absolutely, mind-blowingly fabulous, everyone! xx
There will be a little giveaway this week, so keep your eyes peeled and make sure to pop back in and leave an entry!
I still have a hard time getting used to Servus and Grüß Gott, which is ‘hello’ here in Bavaria. Even for me as a German, this is pretty strange.
Soo, where have I been? (What are my excuses??)
Well, as you know (or might not know), I’ve moved from London to Germany this summer and it took a while to find a new city and perfect place to stay in. I’ve been in Berlin before (and loved it) but work send us down south this time and we’ve settled for no less than Munich, Bavaria. It’s super different from Londontown but we’re getting used to it (which is much easier than it was getting used to London, tbh).
Honestly, after a couple of weeks of vacation and laziness, it’s hard to get back into crafting, photo-editing and blogging mode.
So as not to overwork myself I’ll start by sharing some of my souvenirs from Iceland and the Faroe Islands with you! Apart from two books these were all sewing or knitting related (of course!)
First of all, the wool! You won’t find many craft shops on the Faroe Islands, but when you find one it’s a knitter’s dream! Most people live on sheep farming and as you can imagine, Faroe wool is pretty awesome. I bought a 100g ball of 100% sheep’s wool in a natural colour in a little shop call Igloo, in Torshavn, the capitol of the Faroe Islands.
Helloooo my lovelies!
I’ve got exciting news, although they’re not “new” as I’ve known for a long time now. After a couple of years in Londontown me and the Mr are finally moving back to Germany!
I’ve been waiting for this to happen for a while and now that there’s less than a month left I’ve realised how much I will miss London and the incredibly busy sewing community. I will miss fabric shopping loads (as far as I now there’s nothing like Goldhawk Road or Walthamstow where I’m moving to) and, of course, all the fun sewing events happening across town. Not that there isn’t anything like that in good old Germany, but I’m sulking a bit and will have to get used to the German sewing community which I have ignored for most of the time so far (sorry German folks!).
Woah! My blog turns two today! Has it really only been two years?
It feels like it is such a long time ago that I sat on my bed with a cup of coffee, laptop on my knees, setting up this blog. Much has changed in these two years and the blog has become quite a big part of my life. It has fuelled my sewing fever ever since I blogged about my first make. The first year had its ups and downs and I even thought about quitting at times, because uni (and later my job) were keeping me so busy.
